TP 4 - What are Friends?
A listening exercise which will test for gist listening and detailed listening
The vocabulary of Friendship and how English speakers understand it
Procedure (40-56 minutes)
To introduce basic vocabulary - family; friend; colleague; peer; acquaintance; stranger and connect it to exercise 1 on page 38 of Global Elementary.
I will introduce the exercise on the WB and have the students break into pairs to discuss the task.
I will break the students into pairs to practice speaking and monitor them.
I will play 4 audio clips for the students, and ask them to match them to the pictures in their HO. I will also pose a number of questions to test their understanding; "Who is speaking?" "Are they friends/colleagues/family?" "What are they asking?" This exercise is based around the larger idea of showing interest in others, and offers some practical examples of how this is accomplished.
In pairs, students will pick a topic from exercise 1 and talk to each other about it. I will monitor and provide FB.
We will play a game to see if students have understood the vocabulary of friendship.
